Dragon Dream – for Prompt 40 Sheer Wonder


Adrift in city streets at night
No cars in sight
I’m calling to a distant light
These stars indeed might fall for me
They might

A single child lost in despair
With no-one there
As susseration splits the air
My feet are bare, but you
Might care

Above the cityscape it flies
A lonely prize
A dragon bright before my eyes
I’m not surprised, I called and
It replies

A fractured memory
A dream to me
And into daylight I proceed
You cannot see and yet recall

The ship that hovered overhead
Will know I’ve bled
In blistering light, such tears I’ve shed
And I’ve been led, my story yet

I know at last what this has been
A puppet in between
It’s one part beauty, one obscene
And all we might have been, a dance
A dream

This is based on an amazing dream I had recently which certainly made me feel sheer wonder on awaking and recalling it. 🙂
